The Old is New Again

The Old is New Again

Was it the Fifties or the Sixties when the fanciest salad in a restaurant was The Wedge?  Usually a wedge of crispy Iceberg Lettuce with Thousand Island Dressing and maybe a few Cherry Tomatoes.  Then chefs got more daring and served Wedge of Romaine Lettuce with Bleu Cheese Dressing, Bacon or even Baby Shrimp.  It was a definite move up from the ordinary pale lettuce and Italian Dressing!

Our new favorite first course is The Wedge Re-Invented!  Adorable baby Iceberg Lettuce with Pancetta, Bleu Cheese Crumbles and Ripe Grape Tomatoes.  Some really creative farmer figured out how to grow and ship these perfect little heads of lettuce – amazing!
